    If you're talking about what shoes the women handlers wear I can speak to that, having shown dogs many years ago. When handling a dog one needs to move quickly to properly gait it and that takes sure footing. High heels won't give you that but relatively flat soles will. It's not the handler who's on show, it's the dog and the handler does whatever it takes to present the dog in its best light and sure-footed traction is what it takes.

    But I worry about slipping, heart-attacks, and the Uni-boob falling to the ground, and crushing the dog

    A few years ago the show "What Not To Wear" featured a client who was a dog show walker (Chihuahuas, I think). I don't remember most of the details, but you really need comfortable shoes and clothing that will not detract from the dog. That being said, Clint and Stacy were able to outfit the lady in some nice, stylish items that were flattering on her and didn't take away from the dog.

    Yeah, I posted about her yesterday. IIRC, she was an owner-handler of a Pom, and she also had a paid day-job with the Westminster Kennel Club. I remember she evaluated every outfit she tried on in terms of how it would look with Mr Tinkles (or whatever the über-twee name of the über-pampered purse dog was). But Stacy & Clinton did manage to get through to her eventually.
